κοντά στην περιοχή Elliniká, Crete (Greece)
Έδαφος πετρώδες. Νερό δεν υπάρχει. Υπέροχη θέα και ερείπια πολλών ιστορικών περιόδων. Προσοχή αν φυσάει πολύ.
We start from the village of Ellinika and a small deviation to the ruins of the ancient temple of Aphrodite. Then along a dirt road and a rough path we reach the southeastern side of Mt Oxa. We go up to the top along a very old and nearly destroyed path. We cross the mountain top to the small chapel of Holy Cross (Timios Stavros) and the highest peak at 555m a.s.l. Then we follow the trail down the northwestern slope. Finally, a dirt road and a steep path lead us to Elounda.
Very rocky and thorny terrain. There is no drinking water on the way. The view is panoramic. There are ruins from several historical eras on top. In case of high winds, one should be very cautious.
